Police Scouter Group

 
The Police Scouter Group in this State was formed as part of an Australia wide Association between Police Services and the Scout and Guide Movements.
 
South Australia is now one of the few States that still has an active Group of Police Officers, retired Police Officers and members of Scouts and Guides who have an interest in promoting the aim and objectives of the Group.
 
Over many years, our Group has provided security, traffic control, guidance and legal and safety advice at a diversity of large and small Scout and Guide functions. These include variety shows (Gang Show, Carry on Guides, Comedy Capers) State Camps, Australian Jamborees (both here and interstate), Government House award presentations, Scout camps / hikes, Scout Regattas, Cub and Joey weekend camps, Venturer and Rover activities and a night time caretaker function at the Scout marquee at the Royal Adelaide Show.
 
The Police Scouter Group has assisted the Scouts and Guides in developing procedures and policies in relation to drug and alcohol issues, security matters and addressing traffic concerns.  
 
Our members travel throughout the State and occasionally interstate to provide these services utilising their own time and finances. Many of the events involve overnight camping or in the case of Jamborees, 2 weeks at a time
 
Membership is open to serving police officers, retired police officers and members of the Scout and Guide Movements who have an interest in promoting the aims of the Group.
 
Activities are attended as requested by the Scout and Guide Associations and approved by the Group.
 
Meetings are held once a month at Scout Headquarters.
